What people are saying about Kochi

The whole show was amazing. Divided into three (make up, then intro to understand the roots of this firm of theater and then the proper performance), it definitely exceeded our expectations as it was very beautiful. Dinner consisted of being dropped at a tourist seafood restaurant (where they had to prepare something special for us as we don't eat fish... Had we known about it, we probably would have skipped the restaurant altogether)

Wonderful Evening in Kochi

Prompt and courteous service from start to finish. Dance show was fabulous with marvelous narration. Transport to and from Restaurant was faultless. Meal provided was excellent. Would highly recommend to othrr visitors.

Show was great, but a bit short. Dinner was just average. Value for money was therefore average.

Driver waiting at airport was on time, helpful and clearly signed as arranged.
